Description: Juglans nigra, the Black Walnut tree, is a large and valuable deciduous tree known for its timber, edible nuts, and unique dark-colored bark. With its straight trunk, pinnately compound leaves, and nutritious nuts, Black Walnut is an important species in forestry, agriculture, and natural landscapes.
Height: Typically grows to a height of 20 to 30 meters (2000 to 3000 cm), but can sometimes exceed 40 meters (4000 cm).
Width: Generally has a spread of 15 to 24 meters (1500 to 2400 cm).
Native to: Eastern North America
Bark: The bark of mature Black Walnut trees is dark brown to black and deeply furrowed, creating a distinctive appearance.
Foliage type: Deciduous, featuring pinnately compound leaves with 15 to 23 leaflets.
Growth rate: Moderate to slow
Flowers: Inconspicuous greenish-brown flowers that appear in late spring, typically before the leaves emerge.
Fruit: Black Walnuts, which are prized for their rich flavor and are often used in baking and cooking.
Light: Full sun, as Black Walnut trees prefer bright, sunny conditions.

Black Walnut trees are valued for their high-quality timber, which is used in furniture making and woodworking, as well as for their flavorful nuts. However, it's important to note that the roots of Black Walnut trees release a substance called juglone, which can inhibit the growth of certain other plants, making them less suitable for companion planting in gardens.
